To that end, I've made a cadet (who will be a proxy Orlock juve as Venators can't get juves) and the ultimate anti-big thing champion.
The cadet is a 100% bits box creation - all the metal parts were cast-offs from previous conversions. The head came from a Rogue Trader Imperial Guard landspeeder pilot. The legs are from a Rogue Trader titan crewman. The body is from a Rogue Trader Imperial Guardsman. The hands are from the plastic IG arms sprue, and the pistol is from the Confrontation weapons sprue. I can't recall where his night stick came from.
A lascannon in Necromunda is something of an overkill weapon. But with a severe lack of hard-hitting guns, I figured it might be fun to use one. I based the figure on the body of an early 2000s Enforcer. The pointing hand came from the Adeptus Arbites champion I based my captain on.
The chest pouch covers the damage caused by removing the original right arm and was from the same Imperial Guardsman who donated the torso of my cadet. The new right arm is from a 2nd edition plastic space marine arm, while the lascannon is the old classic Rogue Trader IG one.
It's more than likely that this very expensive new addition to my roster will be spectacularly ineffective and/or die dramatically in his first game. But there's a chance that he might prove to be deadly!
